Did you know... lion cubs are extremely vulnerable to other predators such as leopards and hyenas, but often the main threat is from other lions? In order to protect their young from wandering and invading lions, and to successfully raise their young, females rely on protection from their resident males. Males keep invaders out of their territories by patrolling, marking and roaring, and they will even fight if they encounter a strange male.
